AL HELPING THE LADY FERRIER WHILE SHE RE-SHOES THE 3 RANCH DONKEYS…PANCHO, SARAH & NELLIE (File Photo)
Our gusting winds dissipated sometime during the night & we dawned another sunny & beautiful warm Arizona day. How nice it is to step out of the rig each morning to the sounds of many birds at the feeders & long panoramic views to the mountains on the horizons. This is truly a land of wonderment.
REMEMBER TO CHECK THE HEIGHTS OF THOSE LOW OVERHEAD BRIDGES AHEAD (Internet photo)
We got a call from Jeanie over at the Ranch this morning about 11:30 saying their 3 Donkeys were missing. A gate was down & Pancho, Nellie & Sarah were no where to be found. Ray was out trying to pick up their tracks. Didn’t take us long to fire up the Jeep & head over. Gate may have been broken down & Jeanie is worried the Donkeys were stolen in the night. Kelly & I criss crossed a number of roads & fields in the Whitewater Draw area for a couple hours but didn’t see any sign of them despite using high powered binoculars. The Donkeys have totally vanished. Some of you readers may remember those Donkeys from our times at the ranch these past couple years. They are the same Donkeys I had a picture of in the blog just two days ago on Monday. I’m afraid it is not looking good for them…..especially if they have been stolen. The Donkeys were not working ranch animals, they were/are Jeanie & Ray’s beloved pets. Police, neighbors & area stock yards have been notified.
PANCHO, NELLIE & SARAH ARE A FAMILY…MOM, DAD, & DAUGHTER
SEARCHING FOR PANCHO, NELLIE & SARAH
Had some questions about the ‘sky alien’ photo in Tuesday’s blog. The actual cloud pattern of that ‘face’ is real but I added the two little yellow eyes with Window’s Paint program & then used Picasa’s ‘Focal B&W to highlight the natural orange color of the sunset around the cloud pattern. I took the photo December 6th of 2009 at 6:26 P.M. from the Ranch in McNeil Arizona. Mountains below are the Mules.

PLAY DAY AT THE RANCH (File photo Dec. 09)
Now, here is something very different that has a double whammy family connection for Kelly. This true life Doctor in the following ‘You Tube’ Manchester Tennessee video is actually Kelly’s ex Brother-In-Law. Kelly has been telling me stories about this guy for years. Kelly’s husband at the time was John, Doctor Dave’s Brother. The flamboyant Doctor Dave would sometimes fly Kelly & John to Tennessee for his lavish parties. Kelly remembers a Halloween Party where she thinks the legendary pool player Minnesota Fats was in attendance. Doctor Dave would fly in music stars & hire helicopters to give people rides at the parties etc. Kelly did get up for a helicopter ride at that particular Halloween Party. Now, here is the second family connection & then I will tie the two together. Kelly’s Son-In-Law Bradley, from Vancouver, has his own Video Production Company called M20. (Bradley has the past Canadian Olympics to his credit plus he can be seen on Global TV’s ‘Connected Life’ segment every Friday in Vancouver.)
<<< BRADLEY, SARAH & TWINS GABE & ADARA
Doctor Dave came up with the idea to create a reality TV show about his life awhile back & recruited Bradley to fly down to Tennessee last summer & put together what is known as a trailer in hopes of a possible reality series. We watched the short video this morning & Kelly said Doctor Dave was not acting in the video. That is actually what he is like. DD is the official Doctor for the women’s prison there & also the local football team so you can see where there could possibly be some kind of meat & potatoes for a reality series.
DOWNTOWN ELFRIDA ARIZONA TODAY….NICE HORSE
With today’s viewing public going bonkers over all these reality type shows filled with wild & whacky shenanigans, Doctor Dave’s time may very well have arrived. We think Bradley did a great job putting this short promo together…..Check out DOCSTAR:)) (Docstar can also be seen on Bradleys M2O site.)
